The San Antonio Spurs are reportedly not going to wait very long before retiring Tony Parker's No. 9 jersey.

He was the 2007 NBA Finals Most Valuable Player, becoming the first European player to claim that honor.

Parker played 17 seasons with the Spurs, winning four National Basketball Association titles with the organization, including a 2007 championship in which he garnered Finals MVP honors.

Aside from his 2018-19 campaign spent with the Charlotte Hornets, Parker played his entire career in San Antonio after being selected No. 28 overall in the 2001 draft.

Parker is one of five players in National Basketball Association history to post at least 19,000 points and 7,000 assists, along with Oscar Robertson, John Stockton, Gary Payton and LeBron James. Parker's jersey will join the aforementioned in the rafters of the AT&T Center in San Antonio, with his old partners in crime Duncan and Ginobili more than likely in attendance for the evening. He averaged 15.5 points per game and 5.6 assists over his career.
